Our Stay-cation, I guess

     We're very much enjoying a week to ourselves as a family. The Marine got done with his annual training this past weekend and he has off this entire week to spend with us! We've spent most of our time being lazy, enjoying eachother's company, and getting some errands done that we normally have to twist schedules around to get done.

     Sunday we spent our evening in Rogers. The Cross Church at Pinnacle Hills put on a fantastic fireworks show! Poor N (oldest daughter) was not a fan of the lights and loud noises. Both girls did have fun running around with some other kids and eating way too many cookies though. It was definitely worth the time to go over there and the crowd was really impressive.

     Then yesterday was our anniversary! Four years married now. It's hard to believe in some ways but in other ways it feels like it's been much longer than that. We had a "night in". Hubby man made us some delicious (bacon wrapped!!!) filet mignon with tasty sides (potatoes, broccoli, mushrooms, rolls). I barely finished half my plate. We spent the night talking, playing BO2, and watching our dorky TV shows (I can't remember what was on last . . . Alphas or Firefly).

   Today has just been a normal day. Our a/c is not working well so it's been a not-so-lovely 80 degrees inside. We were gonna go to the $2 movie this morning but the kids ACTUALLY slept past 7 am for once so we didn't even try. I'm not sure what else we'll do this week. We're still deciding whether to go over to Veteran's Park tomorrow for their fireworks since N is so distraught by them. We'll see . . . . Hopefully this weekend we will make it to the Monsters U/Man of Steel showings at the drive-in!

    I guess it's sort of our staycation. We haven't been on a true vacation since we got married (not even a honeymoon, ha) aside from trips to see family so it's kind of nice to take some time to relax. I'm sure we'll make it to the library, the pool, and the park some more this week as well.

Recently, we brought the ipads back out (they were put away for a few weeks) and I have discovered some really great new kid's apps. I've also had some really great money-saving sites shared with me recently so I'll share those soon as well!
